 In Belgium, 123 corona patients have died in the last 24 hours. This is the first time that more than one hundred deaths due to the lung virus have been reported in a 24-hour period. This brings the total number of deaths to 828. Over 93 percent of them were over 65 years old.

That's what the health authorities announced. 560 new patients have been admitted to the hospitals, where there are now 4,995 people, 1,088 of whom are in intensive care. A record number since the outbreak was also allowed to leave the hospital, 436 people, said virologist Steven Van Gucht. A total of 1,696 corona patients have been declared cured.

According to Van Gucht, there are "disturbing" reports coming in from general practitioners who say that people are afraid to be examined by their doctor or in the hospital. "Our general practitioners and hospitals have organized themselves in such a way that they can examine everyone in a safe way." He urged Belgians not to neglect to call the doctor if they are sick, even if they have noncorona-related complaints.
